Asylum is an exhibition of high school and university student artwork curated by SITE Santa Fe’s Young Curators. Inspired by the word ‘asylum,’ the Young Curators put out a call for artwork that explores the different interpretations of the following definitions:
1: A place of protection for a person or group of people from external threats.
2: [dated] An institution for the confinement of those deemed mentally unstable.
The Young Curators have selected works that explored new and varied interpretations of ‘asylum.’ Most of the works do not provide literal definitions but are, instead, delving into the subtleties of internal sources of refuge or solace. They Young Curators are interested in exploring external vs. internal asylums and how such a charged word, asylum, can be interpreted on the personal scale.
